    It’s my 3rd time at Beacon for lunch or dinner. The food is good. I love their tuna tartare and have it every time we were there. The Calabrese mussels were very tasty and pretty good size portion, it came with 4 pieces of toasted bread as well so it enough as a meal. This time the background music is not as loud as last time maybe because it is lunch. I found the music is a little bit loud last time we had Saturday night dinner. Overhaul it’s a good neighbourhood restaurant .

    The appetizers came out in a timely fashion but the entrees took close to an hour to come out and they were lukewarm at best. Very disappointing.

    BeaconResponded 1 day agoThanks for the feedback, we're sorry to hear this wasn't the best experience, we typically do a lot better with bringing dishes out in a timely fashion and hot. We hope to have you back again soon to see how we normally do!

    A bottle of wine, one shared app of mushrooms and two entrees cost just over 💲260 I think for the price it should be really amazing and it just wasn’t for us. The server was funny and very nice the restaurant is very dark the food was average.

    Nice again. Our third time. Music a bit higher than ideal. Also the coffee cups are hard to hold. Waiter was great and very accommodating for my wife’s food allergies. Would highly recommend Beacon.

    Great restaurant. We are in the bar area and I did find the music a little loud and difficult to have a conversation with my friends at our table and later at the bar. Overall it was a really fun vibe.

    Server was inattentive and quite rude. Food was not good- burrata was not fresh and tomatoes that accompanied the dish were horrible tasting. Less than impressed with food quality.

    BeaconResponded on January 4, 2023Hi there, we're so sorry to hear you didn't have a great visit. This is very abnormal for us, we'd love to have you back out to try a few other dishes and hopefully bring your experience up to a 5 star visit!

    We enjoyed our first meal at Beacon. The only disappointment was that brunch is only served on Friday and Saturdays. However our Hamburgers and Club Sandwiches were delicious and the fries are wonderful. We'll return - on a Friday or Saturday - to try brunch soon.

    BeaconResponded on January 4, 2023Hi Carolem! Thanks for the feedback, just so you know, brunch is only Saturday & Sunday, not Friday! Don't want you to be disappointed if you decide to come in on a Friday!

    The soup was good but the main course, salmon, was terrible. It was overcooked and dry. There was no sign of the sauce that was supposed to accompany it.

    Went to beacon for the first time last night and was very thrown off by the service - took quite a long time for drinks and food to come out and our server never came over to our table to check on anything - luckily a manager (I believe it was a manager) came by and made sure our dinner was still coming out - I loved the restaurant ambiance and decor everything about it was great but unfortunately the service made the experience a bit disappointing.

    BeaconResponded on December 29, 2022Thank you for sharing your feedback! We are sorry your experience didn't match your expectations, we will do better next time!

    Christmas Eve at The Beacon was beyond memorable from the sophisticated club style ambience to our energetic and knowledgeable server, David. The food which David had described for us was even beyond our expectations right down to the large spoons to sip up the broth from the fantastic mussels. All of our dishes were unique from usual bistro and steakhouse fare and delicious. Our wine selection was a lovely surprise. The Beacon was recommended by a few friends and a neighbour who have all dined there a few times. We can't wait for summer to check out the rooftop dining. Cheers!

    BeaconResponded on December 29, 2022Thank you so very much for the review! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your time with us!

    Unfortunately the lunch I ordered wasn’t available so I had to go with my 2nd choice which was more expensive.. It was good, but I was craving mussels which I couldn’t get.

    Ordered the oysters and mussels with fries, they were delicious! My dining companions had the tiger prawns, and daily specials — cream of broccoli soup and swordfish with salsa and risotto. We were all part of the clean plate club by the end of the meal as the food was great! My only gripe is that the negroni wasn’t very good at all. Bordering on bad. I’ll stick to wine next time. Our server was also super friendly and helpful with the menu. We will be back!
